Villa Minerva is in a privileged position, on the hills of Sorrento, a city with a modern soul and ancient history, a stone’s throw away from Massa Lubrense, Minerva’s old promontory, with its citrus and olive trees goes down to the limpid sea of Punta Campanella as if it wanted to reach the near island of Capri. Still in the near distance there are Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, ravishing places that have charmed voyager from all times.

Villa Minerva lies just a few kilometres from Sorrento and is a particularly high quality villa with refined fittings and luxurious, spacious bedrooms worthy of the most demanding guests. The recent renovation has restored the villa to its original splendour. Due to its special position, lying on the ridge of a hill that dominates the entire Gulf of Naples, the villa enjoys a panoramic view through 180 degrees from Naples to Vesuvius and on to Capri giving the sensation of being on a transatlantic ship, which was probably the inspiration behind the ideas of the architect who designed it.

The villa is always caressed by sea breezes and there is absolute tranquillity and privacy here: the romantic sunsets are sure to be remembered. It stands in a strategic position for visits to all the best-known sightseeing and cultural visits, from Naples to Positano and Pompei. Sorrento is the gem of the coast, a hospitable and cheerful town that invites you to peaceful strolls with its alleys full of distinctive shops and craftsmen workshops and its main road full of cafés, restaurants, ice cream shops and pubs which will gladden the summer evenings of the visitors, together with a number of festivals and cultural events.

Not far from Sorrento there are Massa Lubrense, known as the “Land of the Mermaids” and Sant’Agata sui due Golfi, an intriguing location that overlooks both the gulfs of Naples and Salerno.
